Security staff receive real-time alerts and
can deny entrance to the detected individual.
MACAU & LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cognitec’s highly specialized face recognition technology
FaceVACS-VideoScan was selected to strengthen physical security measures
in major Macau casinos by alerting security staff in real time about
banned persons entering the premises.
At the expo during the same event, on February 23 and 24, Cognitec is
showing a live demonstration of the technology in booth 12/13 and
invites gaming security professionals to talk to our staff about
existing installations and product benefits.
In partnership with Melco Crown Entertainment, Cognitec supported the
large-scale design and implementation efforts on site, resulting in
multiple efficient system installations that now successfully prevent
losses and criminal activities.
Cognitec develops market-leading face recognition technologies and
applications for enterprise and government customers around the world.
In various independent evaluation tests, our FaceVACS® software has
proven to be the premier technology available on the market. We are proud to
deliver the first system of its kind in the casino market.”
Leroy Daniel, Executive Director, Surveillance Operations at Melco Crown
Entertainment, will speak about the system during his talk “How we got
facial recognition to work” at the World Game Protection Conference at
The M Resort, Las Vegas, NV, at 2:45 pm on Tuesday, February 23, 2016.
Cognitec’s software solution uses advanced face recognition technology
to detect people’s faces in live video streams and compare them to
databases of banned persons. Corporate headquarters are located in Dresden,
Germany; other offices in Miami, FL; Rockland, MA; and Sydney, Australia.
“By working closely with Cognitec and through a process of internal
research, experimentation and analysis, we have found a tipping point,”
said Leroy Daniel. “We are confident that our joint commitment to this
significant project will result in safer casino environments for casino
staff and patrons.”
Stephen Meltz, Managing Director Asia Pacific at Cognitec, said:
“Championed by David Mackay, SVP of Asset Protection, Melco Crown’s
security team welcomed Cognitec’s technical specialists to work
determinedly toward the completion of these projects. Cognitec’s
